Google Circles / Contacts

slated in moments at 6:34 pm

Google’s merge of Circles contacts into my Gtalk and Gmail contacts is one of the worst things to ever happen in the history of ever. Just really bad.
I feel forced now to delete the majority of my circles, and sadness for me re: anyone that was worth keeping but were not in one of my “already knew this person before g+ so they definitely belong in my contact list and in fact are already there” circles; they’re all getting disappeared now. Sad but necessary. This is self-defense; I must save myself.

Experienced the cartoons flashing thing again.. it’s like an overlay.. same clear with eyes open… each picture detailed and clear but all too chaotic and fast and sort of unreal to focus upon and interpret nor remember. Not such odd/weird cartoon characters this time… almost a little bit ancient/abstract. This was shortly after a nightmare — something to do with vampires.

It was the right thing to do at the time. And, as predicted, I quite regret it now.

Josh and Me :)
at his book reading/signing at Politics & Prose.

I don’t know that he ever really stops smiling; he’s certainly contagious.

Fd broke

slated in site-building at 12:39 am

le sigh. Ferrydust was broken.. exhibiting a couple of errors across the pages that I figured traced back to some plugin that was attached to a mysql or php version upgrade or something. I checked the internets and several other sites experiencing the same error. But I couldn’t find a fix or pinpoint the problem and I couldn’t hide it, so I went ahead and upgraded the Textpattern version to current (4.4.1), which hasn’t been done in ages. (Did this across two other sites that were similarly “broken”.) This solved one or two errors, but left another one or two.. I trial and errored until I found the plugin linked the the problem and disabled it. Surely that would break some pages on some articles but so be it. Otherwise seemed to be well. Discovered today that articles were not showing on some pages… Went through and eventually found a ridiculous fix (changed txp:article to txp:output_form) but a) that was really stupid—shouldn’t be that way and b) still others still not showing/working/cannot be so “straightforwardly” fixed. Will have to deal with it later. Scrap the whole thing and start with some existing uncustomized template?

Also, grrrrrrrr.

I met a kid (4.75 or 5.75 years old) last weekend whose favorite food is broccoli. Reallly? What is it you like about Broccoli? “EVERYTHING!” Even raw, apparently.

I think having an emphatic love for eating vegetables is an excellent early start in life. If broccoli makes him so happy, just imagine when he gets to know bacon. :)

(I have broccoli with my lunch today, which is why this came up now.)
